Erlin 二林, Changhua County

2/27/2012 Taiwan Explorer

Erlin 二林 is a small township in Changhua County, located close to Taiwan's western coast and next to Lukang and not too far from Changhua City. In case you wonder how come I ended up in this godforsaken little town, it's because my wife and I went to Lukang during Chinese New year, but all the hotels there were either booked or overpriced. So we found a home stay near Erlin. The next day we took a bus from there to Changhua City. Since we had an hour to kill, we decided walk around. I made few pictures along the way and this is what we saw. Erlin has nothing interesting to see, the life is very slow-paced here, but people are very friendly.

Almost like old Japan...
